The Editors of NATURE present their compliments to Professor Linus Pauling, and beg
to acknowledge the receipt of his letter of January 2 with the communication entitled
THE STRUCTURE OF THE NUCLEIC ACIDS by Professor Pauling and Professor Robert B. Corey.
The Editors note that the complete paper to which this refers is being published in
the February issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This
creates a somewhat unusual position, but in view of the commendable shortness of the
communication, the Editors are sending it to the printers immediately and they will
arrange to publish it during February.
